For quite some time, I have been unable to get streaming videos to play properly. This occurs with Youtube, Hulu, and related sites. I hear the audio fine, but what I see is basically a slide show of images. I've done speed tests on my computer (using as well as troubleshoot other areas. I have a high-speed connection through Time-Warner cable. Somoe of the lower-quality videos on Youtube play okay, but higher-quality videos on TV network sites like NBC, CBS, or ABC won't play at all.

A friend of mine says I need a new computer (mine is about 7 years old), but I contend it's a bandwidth issue. Any way to fix this annoying problem? Thanks.
